BOGUS water board officials conned their way into an elderly couple’s house in Sheffield and stole cash, police have revealed.
They called at the house on Holmhirst Drive, Woodseats, and asked the couple to turn their taps on claiming they needed to carry out some checks.
But once the ‘workers’ had left the house the couple realised some money had gone missing from an upstairs room.
One of the men was white, aged in his 30s, of an average build and was wearing dark blue work clothing.
